I'm hoping someone can help me with this issue and I would greatly appreciate any information at all.

 

I have a front load GE Washer Model number WSXH208A1WW.  The wash cycle ran but the washer did not drain.  I called a repairman to look at it.  He felt the hoses and said he was pretty sure it was not a blockage issue but was a bad pump. I told him thanks, but I'll fix it myself.

 

I disconnected the hoses from the pump to ensure that there was no blockage.  I then ordered a new pump from AppliancePartsPros.com that was supposed to be compatible with my washer.  Upon installing the new pump, my washer still won't drain.  It does not sound like the pump is kicking on or in any way "trying" to work.

 

The only thing I can think of that may be responsible is the fact that the specifications listed on the new pump are not exactly the same as those on my old pump.

 

Old Pump:

Mod M65

10 min on/ 50 min OFF

120 Vac 60 Hz

1.2A 50W

 

New Pump:

ModM222-5

2 min ON/ 10 min OFF

120 Vac 60 Hz

1.25A 85W

 

Question 1: are these slight differences enough to prevent the new pump from working?

Question 2: if not, what else can I do?

 

Thank you.

Pay the repairman to 'fix' it.

Update: Upon further inspection, I noticed a coin lodged down inside the old pump.  I cleared the coin out, reinstalled the old pump, and now it works. Thanks for your help.
